The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
Buffer overflow in the gdImageStringFTEx function in gdft.c in the GD
Graphics Library 2.0.33 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary
code via a crafted string with a JIS encoded font.
Tetex 3.x uses an embedded copy of the gd source and may also be
affected by this issue (CVE-2007-0455).
A buffer overflow in the open_sty function for makeindex in Tetex
could allow user-assisted remote attackers to overwrite files and
possibly execute arbitrary code via a long filename (CVE-2007-0650).
The updated packages have been patched to prevent these issues.
Update the affected packages.
